The artist colony of Laguna Beach, located between Newport Beach and Dana Point, is one of Orange County’s hidden gems. The city’s topography is unique to other California coastal cities with its seven miles of coves and beaches (30 to be exact!) where visitors can explore sea caves, tide pools, oceanside bluffs, natural tide pools and of course, sandy beaches, all within city limits. Laguna Beach also boasts the most beachfront lodging options in all of California, making it an ideal spot for a beach getaway, and offers more than 100 unique dining experiences among a residential population of 23,000.

Beyond the beach, the city is home to more than 20,000 acres of protected wilderness, making it an optimal location for adventurous exploration. From world-renowned mountain biking trails for all levels of expertise, hundreds of miles of hiking, dramatic vistas, verdant hills and marine sanctuaries, there’s no limit of new places to discover during a visit to Laguna Beach.
